Dr. Gerald Hamwi

About Me

I am the Medical Director of the AHF Healthcare Centers: Valley and Antelope Valley. I have been an HIV doctor since 1999, but my real specialty is “Family and Community Medicine”. To me, being a doctor means much more than providing medicine. I strive to be an advocate every single day I go to work. HIV care is my passion because I feel especially connected to people who have been through struggles in their lives. I want to welcome those people who may avoid getting the best healthcare because they are LGBT, or because they struggle with addiction, or because they don’t speak English, or because they have no home. These are my people. My community.

AHF Valley Healthcare Center has become an extended family to me since beginning practice here in 2003. And I am proud to keep welcoming, advocating, and caring for my family and my community for years to come.

Fun Fact: I love making people laugh and to cook.
